Hi Does anyone know just how much Mr Macron is going to increase the taxes for Non residents? My house is located in the south of France near Pezenas. Iv'e been coming to France regularly for over 25 years now and I have cost the French Government Zero, all I have ever done is pay into the system, Taxes,Building materials, house furnishings, concerts, Fuel, food the list goes on. I even come to the North of France to ski once per year," More money".
If the proposed tax increase goes ahead many foreign people who have holiday homes will have to sell up.The end result of that will be local businesses Like restaurants ,local shops etc; will have to close down putting even more young people on the scrap heap. During the winter months, any local restaurant owner will tell you that without the Brit's,Swed's etc; they would not survive and in the high season the same people bring friends and family putting more money into the local economy creating more part time jobs. I think Mr Macron should think again regarding the Tax rises.I'm certain if they go-ahead people will sell up and find another holiday home, one of my best friends has already re-located to Cypress. It's a real shame we bother nobody and respect the locals and their values.
I agree, but have you written to President Macron to tell him all this? If more of us did it might have more of a result!
What an arrogant post! Are you for real? Somehow I don’t think so, the north of France is hardly well known for its skiing but I think I have seen an artificial slope on an old slag heap near the A16 not far from Calais.
Ok Val Da, where s the link to Mr Macron please so we can write?
No link, just write a letter, put it in en envelope, make a visit to La Poste for a stamp, and address it to:
